Scientific studies show that zeolite can provide these wonderful benefits to your health.
Protection from Harmful Microbes
Along with improving your immune health, zeolite is a powerful antimicrobial. It can fight potentially harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Zeolites are so effective that they have been used to treat urinary tract infections and dental plaque formations, both of which are caused by pathogenic microbes. Another study found that zeolite has antiviral properties due to its potential ability to absorb viral particles within the zeolite cages. What makes zeolite even better is that it doesn’t have a negative effect on the beneficial microbes in your gut.
Another well-known benefit of zeolite is its ability to help the body balance pH by providing alkalizing minerals while supporting kidney function. A lot of foods are acid-forming, while most greens are alkalizing to the body. Alcohol, pesticides, pollution, and chronic stress add to acidity. An acidic body shows the sign of strain with headaches, chronic inflammation, mood disorders, persistent fatigue, etc. In properly-cleansed zeolite, the alkalizing minerals calcium, potassium and magnesium are inside the honeycomb cages. The zeolite cage supplies the body the beneficial minerals and absorbs toxins in exchange.
The biggest benefit that zeolite plays in alkalizing the body relates to how it helps the kidneys, and the kidneys maintain your internal pH. Many heavy metals impair kidney function, therefore zeolite can help your body get rid of heavy metals, supporting optimal kidney health.
Fatigue, brain fog, a weak immune system, countless health issues are common side effects when these toxins build up. Zeolite is the master of detoxification. Its unique honeycomb-like crystalline structure has a negative charge. This negative charge attracts positively-charged toxins like lead, mercury, or nitrosamines. When you take a properly cleansed zeolite supplement, it’s trapping toxins in its “magnetized” honeycomb cage.
Boost the Immune System
Zeolite has specifically been shown to increase T-cell activity and increase the number of macrophages in the body, two cells essential for a healthy immune function. Heavy metals can suppress your immune system, making your body vulnerable to pathogens and prone to autoimmune issues. Zeolite can both increase the effectiveness of your immune system while simultaneously protecting it from heavy metals.
Leaky gut occurs when the lining of your intestinal wall has an increased permeability. This allows food particles, unwanted toxins and microbes to leak from your intestines into the bloodstream. This causes a weakened immune system, excessive fatigue, autoimmune issues, skin rashes, depression, and intense cravings for sugar or carbohydrates. These symptoms only get worse over time if the gut isn’t healed. Evidence suggests that zeolite can support a healthy gut.
When heavy metals such as lead and mercury accumulate in your body, they can also negatively affect your mood. Mercury from amalgam dental fillings can result in depression, excessive anger, and problems with anxiety. Many times, these problems or ailments are dismissed as resulting from stress or a chemical imbalance instead of heavy metals.
Life can be stressful enough without heavy metals weighing you down. By reducing the build-up of heavy metals, zeolites can lift your mood.
